CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said: “The Minneapolis Park Board’s refusal to acknowledge the request to accommodate additional public parking at Salaam Mosque, which is similar to what the park board historically allowed a church, is a clear definition of religious discrimination.

“Salaam Mosque’s proposal is mainly to offer public parking that would create safe offloading for children attending the mosque, which is exactly the same reasoning the park board allowed for a church on the same street.”

CAIR-MN’s mission is to protect civil rights, enhance understanding of Islam, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.
